All employees and students will be instructed to complete a daily health assessment, which includes a temperature reading. The University will also provide every employee and student with a thermometer with which to take their temperature.
Note: Temperature checks are not a replacement for other protective measures such as social distancing and wearing face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is possible still to be COVID-positive without the presence of a fever. However, you are encouraged to invest in a personal thermometer for daily symptom checks and to monitor yourself for signs of fever if you are feeling unwell or experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms. If you feel unwell in any way, you should remain at home or in your residence hall.
Resident students who require isolation or quarantine at a separate residence are defined as follows:
• Category 1: Individuals directed to self-quarantine;
• Category 2: Individuals who are or become COVID-19 symptomatic;
• Category 3: Individuals awaiting test results for suspected COVID-19 positive status;
• Category 4: Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.
If you are an on-campus student who is either being tested for COVID-19 or has been diagnosed positive and are able to return to your permanent residence to quarantine/isolate, you should do so. If you cannot, the University will make arrangements for you to be moved into special housing on campus. The University is prepared to provide food and other support services to students who are in isolation/quarantine on campus.
If you are an off-campus student, you should quarantine/isolate in your local off-campus residence or return to your permanent residence.
